They're Paying You to Do WHAT?!?!

I just read about this guy in Entrepreneur magazine.

People pay him to wear their organization's shirt.  No, I'm actually not kidding.  He'll wear your shirt and then utillize social media to get the word out.  Again, I'm actually not kidding.  One of the cool things about this guy's idea is his payment schedule.  If he wears your shirt on the first day of the year, it costs you $1.  If he wears your shirt on the last day of the year, it costs you $365.  He'll make about $70K this year.  No, I'm actually not kidding.

This is the perfect example of doing something different and innovative, and just putting it out there.  While I don't really know HOW he got started, I imagine it was something along the lines of "Hey dude.  Will you pay me $1 to wear your t-shirt?" and his buddy was like "Yeah, okay.  Whatever.  Here's $1."  Or something like that...

The thing is, this could have been a flop.  It could have gone no where, and quite frankly, it would have gone no where if it weren't for social media.  This guy has over 18,000 devoted Twitter followers who care what shirt he's wearing.  Social media is here to stay, and it's time you get on board.  

Do something different today, and put it out there!
